It’s been said before, but time waits for no smartphone. What’s top of the line one month might seem dated the next, and so it has come to pass that OnePlus have updated their flagship smartphone to keep pace with the latest handsets from the likes of Google, Huawei and Xiaomi. But what does the 3T do over the vanilla 3?

First up, we should explain that rather than being a transformational update, the 3T is merely a modest mid-life spec bump. Headlining the changes is the move from a Snapdragon 820 to a Snapdragon 821 processor, which offers around 10% more performance than the 820.

Elsewhere, you’ll find that the battery capacity has gone up from 3,000mAh to 3,400mAh – likely to compensate for the higher clock speed of the processor. Oh, and the front facing camera has gone from the 5MP unit you’ll find in the 3 to a 13MP Samsung made unit which should present your face in comical detail, if you’re that way inclined.

And that, my friends, is where the major changes end. The 3T is outwardly distinguishable by its two new colour options – Gunmetal and Soft Gold. The latter recently debuted for the OnePlus 3. The 3T will cost from £399 in the UK for the 64GB model, rising to £439 for the 128GB model. It’s available to order from the 28th of November.

Here’s the full spec list:
